Side effects…


With Jeff Sessions’ likely appointment to Attorney General, most people are focusing on his alleged racism and opposition to the Voting Rights Act. But in perusing his background, I found another tidbit which could ultimately be in the headlines: he is fiercely against marijuana legalization.

The state experiment in marijuana legalization, either medical or recreational, has largely taken place under the tolerant eye of the Obama Justice Department, which has “deprioritized” enforcement of federal marijuana laws.  If Sessions decides to prioritize enforcement, expect this to be in the headlines in the next few years.
